 183 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 161 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 13 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 8 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 2 killed the bitch and survived.
 5 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

I tried this SEVERAL times but finally pulled it off! I decided that Malicious Blades was the way to go, with the lack of late-game ammo worries, and no guarantees of a Chainsaw.

As you would probably expect, it was mostly an issue of getting off the ground. At the beginning I was mostly relying on Shotguns (prioritising the more general prerequisite skills first) and doing that without Shottyman was rough. I started mixing in melee when I had a Chainsword and Brute to help with it.

Once I got Malicious Blades and a pair of Chainswords, it didn't take me long to throw out my ranged weapons and stick to charging at people. Once I had my Cerberus Duelist Armor, I felt pretty close to unstoppable a lot of the time, at least it was quite smooth sailing for the most part.

Lava was really annoying until I got my Cerberus Boots, then not a worry afterwards.

A while after Whizkid 2, I realised after a shameful delay that I should work on replacing my Chainswords with new ones I could slap P-mods on. Shortly after the second one, I found the Butcher's Cleaver and paired that with one of the P-Chainswords, throwing out the extra. This was my final weapon setup, since I didn't find the Dragonslayer or anything like that.

From there, I had modded up more sets of Cerberus Armor as backup, I threw out some Armor I probably shouldn't have (particularly the Nanofiber Red as an infinite-durability backup) and my bloated stockpile of basic mods (no regrets there) to try and make room for more med-packs and other emergency things and necessities.

I wasn't too sure about traits after Whizkid 2, so ended up with extra Ironman/Finesse/Brute because that seemed just generally helpful. Juggler was tempting at the start when I actually did have need to swap weapons, but it didn't have any room to sheen when I finally got pushed to take it.

Only rare mods I found were Sniper mods, disappointing since I wanted Onyx or Nano for Armor...

In any case, I was almost surprised by how simple things seemed to get once I got my Mastery and solid gear, with only a few close calls.

"SEVERAL" times isn't too much regarding any challenge in DoomRL. Actually, starting a normal game on UV or N! would take several tries just to reach say Anomaly, then several more tries to pass it through (luck dependent, sadly). My last challenge (AoB+AoLT) took no less than 50 tries to get off the ground, then got killed in Anomaly by the ambush, so... However, grats with a resilience challenge!

Yeah, that about lines up with experience with ITYTD, HNTR and all the challenges I've actually managed to beat.

I just found the sheer contrast between the number of attempts that flunked out early and how "smoothly" this run went to be funny. :P
